This was a last minute choice and we were very surprised at the level of service. The food was absolutely gorgeous couldn't knock it, we highly recommend the John Millington *****

A favourite place of ours and staff are very friendly. We drink here often and it's great atmosphere with a mixed age range. I love sitting outside whilst sunny. My only comment is the prices, the food is consistent but perhaps a little high.

I came here with my friend for dinner and drinks on a Friday night. It's always really busy in here, and tonight was no exception but it didn't affect the service at all. Food was prompt and there were some good offers on drinks as it was Friday. I had the chilli and my friend had the beef burger. Both... More

An attractive and popular place. The food is a notch up from the average pub and is well presented. There are no deals or bargains but the prices are fair. They also have a better than average range of ales, recently a Camra pub of the month, but I would still like to see more variety. It would be great... More

Eaten & drank here lots! Brilliant in the summer outside, fab atmosphere, food delicious (slightly pricey) but always busy & thriving. Never any issues. Can't beat their burgers or steak fajitas!

Beautiful Summer Evening, beautiful setting, ruined by ignorant bar staff To busy chatting amongst themselves to notice customers waiting When they did eventually notice that customers were waiting it was a case of "first to hit the eye" rather than longest waiting to be served! Walked out and went to the Governors instead. Much better service! and I encourage you... More

We had an extended family meal here. It was a really busy Friday and the place was packed. The staff gave us an excellent part of the restaurant that gave us an element of privacy. The food was good and they we're prompt. They accommodated all the requests of my guests, too. Well done to all of them.

Threee of us had different courses for lunch and all appeared to be flavoursome, home cooked food. Good attentive service, nice wine list and a very good selection of beers. Nice tasteful decor and a pleasant busy atmosphere. Couldn't find fault with anything

Disappointed that you are no longer taking reservations to eat in the bar area. I wanted to book a table of 6 for Sunday lunch. The restaurant was full as you had a party on - yet the lady on the phone said you'd stopped booking/reserving the bar area to eat in because people had complained. I think this is... More

We often visit JM for a shared platter and a nice glass of wine. Unfortunately, the menu appears to have changed and this was not on offer. Only one other couple were eating on a Tuesday evening but the food took ages to come. I ordered sausages and mash and the sausages had very tough skins which spoilt the whole... More

Hi thank you for your feedback, I am sorry that you did not enjoy your recent visit. We have recently updated our menu, but I am unsure which sharing platter you refer to as we did not have one on our previous menu either. I would appreciate it if you contact me personally at thejohnmillington@hydesbrewery.com with some more details of... More
